Celebrating over 30 and pushing 40

Yep, this is a non photo post and today is my birthday and I am realizing how super old I am getting. Driving today and looked over at my 14 yr old son and thought when did this kid grow a mustache and is he really going to be driving soon. That's actually when I thought hey this old thing might not be so he can drive me around. Not even 5 min later I was pulled over for driving way too fast. Luckily the officer had pity on me and gave me a warning. He said he just couldn't give me a ticket on my birthday....really he was probably not wanting to be the reason for my soon to come midlife crisis. Yeah, I was almost sobbing uncontrollably and my son even said "Mom please stop crying your embarrassing me." What my son didn't know is I can't afford one more ticket...I'm not talking money either. I have been pulled over way to many times for speeding and in jeopardy of losing my licence (this is where that teenage son will come in handy). So, I am reflecting a little tonight. What in the world is really so important in my life that I have to drive like Dale Earnhardt Jr. ( that's a race car driver...right?). Maybe, that is why someone invented that cruise control thingy on my steering wheel.  I think I might just use that cruise option more often, who knows, I might not be as late to things as I think I will. I could just put my entire life in cruise control option.
We had a party at our house tonight, complete with hay bales around a bonfire in the backyard. There was plenty of good food and even better company. It was a great birthday. The best part of my little brother calling and chatting for like an hour. We laughed about things, talked about TV shows, movies and life. Man, I really love my family. Funny, how that one call for a measly hour could be the highlight of my night, but it was. I hope my kids have these for ever sibling bonds when they grow up and move on with their lives. I don't know if I seized this year the way I intended, but I think it was an overall good year. Heres to new goals and dreams...I hope this year I can grasp just a few more of them.
